Q. What is the difference between our Homeschool Program vs. Live Virtual Online Class Program?
A. The Homeschool Program is a self-guided educational program that does not involve live online classes. The parent serves as the teacher. For specific information on curriculum, please visit the "Homeschool" page on the website.
Our Live Virtual Online Class Program follows the format of a traditional brick & mortar school with a lunch period and breaks in between classes. The students attend class virtually through our in-house classroom platform where they are interfacing with the teacher and other students. Classes are Tuesday to Friday. 8:30am-3:30pm for 1st grade to 12th grade. Pre-K students can choose an AM or PM class schedule. For specific information on curriculum, please visit the "Virtual Private School" page on the website.
In both programs, the students are assigned a Guidance Coach, participate in our monthly virtual field trips, and can participate on the daily discussions .
